Physiotherapy helps you restore your body back to its normal condition following an accident, illness or injury. It focuses primarily on improving the condition and subsequent function of the muscles, joints and limbs, but also provides a multi-faceted approach to improving standards of general health.

Physiotherapy focuses on providing relief from aches as a result of work or muscular conditions. It works by using a number of different methods to gradually increase the strength of the muscles, bones and connective tissues in the body; this helps to increase the range of movement and flexibility around the joints.
Physiotherapy aids:

  • Traumatic injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Heart and lung disease
  • Back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Strokes
  • Muscular dystrophy
